Here’s another family that is very special to my heart: Sam and Rachel and their awesome kiddos Josh & Ava! Sam’s brother Jake is one of my lifelong best friends (since third grade!). I photographed Sam & Rach’s wedding either eleven or fourteen years ago (haha ;) inside joke), and I have been photographing them ever since! This fall’s session at Hafer Park in Edmond turned out so good. I love the outfits Rach picked out for them to wear!
I'm Abi Ruth, located in OKC. You can find me on all the social media platforms.
I’ve been doing my best friend Cassie’s family photos every fall for many years now, so we are always trying to come up with new ideas for them. This year, they decided to dress up formal, and we did the shoot in the very cool Aloft hotel in downtown OKC. I really love how the photos turned out! Here are some of my favorites.
(***Fun bonus fact: Cassie’s dress was an Abi Ruth The Shoppe special from me! :)***)
This sweet family are close friends of some of my dear friends. A few months ago, we did this family session of them at their home. I think it adds a layer of meaning when people choose to do a photo shoot at home, and I love how these turned out!
Well, 2020 has been the weirdest year of my life, but one very bright spot during this crazy year was my trip to Washington back in October. I was able to do multiple photo shoots for some of my very best friends in the world. And we all stayed in a cabin in the woods in Packwood, WA, for a few days. It was just the type of serene friend time I needed this year!
I’ve already shared the photo shoots I did in Washington of Mike & Candace and of Toryn, and today I’m sharing some favorites I did of Toryn with her fam. As I mentioned in the last post, Nate and Betsy have been two of my best friends for over half my life. I love them so much, and I love the photos we got of their awesome fam. :)
Toryn is the daughter of two of my friends, Nate and Betsy. Considering I’ve been best friends with her parents since my early teen years, it’s pretty crazy to think Toryn is a senior in high school now! A couple of months ago, I got to visit them in Washington and take some family photos (coming next blog post) and senior photos of Toryn. She is a truly beautiful girl, inside and out, so of course my job was easy. Oh, and her new puppy Fiddlefurt and the sweet family dog Wilbur had to be part of her photos, too!
Very cool sidenote: the bleach dyed jeans Toryn is wearing in the first couple pics and the blue vintage dress she’s wearing are both from my clothing resell business, Abi Ruth The Shoppe. :)
I am SO PROUD of you and I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!
